They’re high in protein and low in calories. They can be eaten for any meal, enjoyed alone or as part of a sandwich or dish, and can be cooked in seemingly endless ways. That’s right, we’re talking about eggs. Despite their versatility, many people think of eggs as a breakfast food, and only cook them in the most common ways – scrambled, sunny side up, over easy, poached, and hard boiled. And, let’s face it, even though they are nutritious and delicious, having scrambled eggs for breakfast every morning will likely get boring after a few days.
If you’re in need of some egg inspiration, here are just of a handful of creative ways that eggs can be eaten:
- Omelet – Add some new flavor to your breakfast routine by trading in your scrambled eggs for an omelet. Simply whisk two eggs together in a bowl and add your favorite chopped veggies, meat, and shredded cheese, and then fry the mixture in a pan.
- Egg salad – Cook hard-boiled eggs, drain, and peel. Chop celery and onion into small pieces and put into a bowl with mayo and salt and pepper to taste. Chop the peeled eggs and combine with the other ingredients.
- Crustless quiche – In a skillet, cook any veggies you want to put in your quiche. Combine eggs, the cooked veggies, and any cheese or meat you want in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a greased pie pan and cook at 350° F for 30 minutes.
- Egg soup – To make this quick and easy protein-rich meal, simply crack a raw egg into a bowl of steaming soup. The broth will cook the egg, resulting in a thicker, tastier soup.
